Artist Statement by Nico Gozal: I have been fascinated with the endless possibilities of colors since I was a child. I find colors a very exhilarating element that inspires and bring so much joy to my life. Combining my academic training in Fashion Design and my love of the art of Silk Painting, I hope to transpose what color means to me.
“Aqua/Terra” is a collection of 2 and 3-dimensional paintings inspired by the nature of the land and the sea. I use bold and vibrant tones and hues which commonly found in nature around us to create a brightly colored world. With this body of work, I aspire to create a sentiment of whimsy and childlike merriment for all ages. I hope each piece brings a sense of wonderment as I do when I look at fireworks or kaleidoscope.
